HMF Engineering was founded in 1997 building private label motorcycle performance motorcycle exhausts, and since then they have been at full sound producing exhausts for many different markets, including the ATV and side-by-side categories. In addition to exhausts, HMF makes aftermarket bumpers, intrusion bars, racks, clutch kits, and other assorted accessories under their IQ division.

Any off-road enthusiast will know that the main reason you put an aftermarket exhaust on your quad or side-by-side is to add additional power. Exhausts from companies do this by uncorking a bit of their exhausts, but there are specific ways to do this that find the best balance between power output, sound quality, and longevity. HMF Engineering has found the sweet combination of all of these factors, and it starts with their build quality. Only the highest quality parts are used to build their exhausts, including stainless steel and/or a high quality aluminum. These materials are made to withstand the high heat and abuse from different terrains time and time again (We’re talking to all of you mudders and rock crawlers out there!).

The high quality components are assembled to HMF Engineering’s bar raising standards. And, did we mention that all of their exhausts are made in the USA?! That’s how you know that quality is built in right from the start.

Beyond just the building of exhausts and selling them for a wide variety of vehicles, the team at HMF ensures that every one of their exhausts has that true HMF tone, otherwise known as “the official sound of offroad”. You might have seen their video before, where HMF’s owner sits enjoying the sound of one of the company’s exhausts in an armchair. The point is proven that they are not only built with high quality components, but they sound just as good as they look.

Since not everyone wants the some old exhaust as their next door neighbor, HMF allows customers to choose from custom colors. Maybe you want it to match the color of your quad? You’re in luck because there are a ton of different color variations that are made to match the industry’s wide range of color options on stock vehicles. As you would expect, the quality standards carryover to these color options to ensure that HMF’s products look as good years down the muddy road as they first did out of the box.

With any modern exhaust, there are several different options for tuning that allow you to stay legal at particular riding areas while also getting maximum performance out of your system. HMF is there to help with all tuning questions down the road so you won’t have any trouble staying legal on the trail while also getting maximum performance from your quad or side-by-side.

Backing up each one of HMF’s exhaust products is a 2-year limited warranty, ensuring that you have a solid backing right from the start. For more information, visit https://www.hmfracing.com/
